Install Google Chrome on Fedora 16/17

This explains how to install Google Chrome on Fedora 16/17.

First we need to add the Google yum repository to your system, for this we will add the 32 and 64 bit repositories.

Create the following file with root privileges.

$ sudo vi /etc/yum.repos.d/google.repo

Add the following contents and save the file.

[google-chrome]
name=google-chrome - 64-bit
baseurl=http://dl.google.com/linux/chrome/rpm/stable/x86_64
enabled=1
gpgcheck=1
gpgkey=https://dl-ssl.google.com/linux/linux_signing_key.pub

[google-chrome]
name=google-chrome - 32-bit
baseurl=http://dl.google.com/linux/chrome/rpm/stable/i386
enabled=1
gpgcheck=1
gpgkey=https://dl-ssl.google.com/linux/linux_signing_key.pub

Now we are ready to install Chrome.

$ sudo yum install google-chrome-stable

Any dependent packages will be installed and after a short time you will be able to start enjoying Chrome.

If you feel adventurous you can also install Google Chrome Beta or Unstable by running the following commands.

$ sudo yum install google-chrome-beta
$ sudo yum install google-chrome-unstable
